Facebook & YouTube most widely used platform for us adults

Adults are busy people, but that’s not stopping them from checking out social media. A new poll from Pew Research Center finds 73 percent of U.S. adults polled say they’re checking YouTube daily, and 69 percent say the same of Facebook. In terms of social media that is growing in popularity over time, Instagram takes the cake.

In 2012 just nine percent of adults said they checked Instagram daily– but this year that number climbed to 37 percent. The least-used social network was Reddit, with just 11 percent of people saying they check it daily.
